Vancouver, British Columbia, November 25, 2021 – Quebec Nickel Corp. (CSE: QNI; FSE: 7lB) (“Quebec Nickel Corp.” or the “Company“) is pleased to report on its 2022 drill program on its 100%-owned Ducros Property Group Nickel-Copper-PGE Project, located in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, northwestern Quebec.
The Company has engaged Orbit Garant Drilling Inc. based in Val-d’Or to complete its maiden, multi-phase drill program on the property, commencing in early January 2022. Orbit Garant Drilling Inc. (TSX: OGD) is one of Canada’s largest mineral drilling companies, providing services to major, intermediate and junior mining companies through all stages of exploration, development and production cycles.
The first phase of the drill program (winter 2022) will focus on three (3) Nickel-Copper-PGE target areas across the property.
- Fortin Ni-Cu-PGE Showing (East Sector of Property): Drill targets to be tested in this first phase are based on results from the 2020 ground electromagnetic (ARMIT-TDEM) survey, the 2021 stripping mapping and sampling program, and on-going property-scale compilation and 3D geological modelling;
- Ducros Sill (Central Part of Property): Follow-up verification drilling (hole twinning) of reported historical anomalous nickel values obtained: DU 87-05: 0.167% Ni over 190.5m, DU 87-06: 0.171% Ni over 67.3m and DU 87-07: 0.150% Ni over 134.4m (GM47268) and, their potential on-strike and vertical extension, along the 3 kilometre long, and up to 600 metre wide prospective Ducros ultramafic sill; and
- Ducro Gabbro Area (Western Sector of Property): Testing of previously defined ground electromagnetic conductors associated with highly anomalous Nickel, Copper, Cobalt till sample results.
The company has increased its 2021/2022 Work Program to over $5 Million. The increased exploration budget will allow the Company to drill up to 20,000 metres across the Ducros Property Group area. The Phase II drill program will be directed to testing additional targets identified from the 1,717 line-km property-wide helicopter-borne VTEM survey, based on the result obtained from follow-up ground truthing geophysical surveying, prospecting/sampling and geological fieldwork, in addition to other prospecting/geological/geochemical targets identified on the property through on-going Company exploration activities.
